CAMPO's Structure

Governance

CAMPO is governed by a five-member Policy Board consisting of representatives of the cities of Corvallis, Philomath and Adair Village, the County of Benton and the Oregon Transportation Department (ODOT). The Policy Board is assisted by a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) made up of the professional staff of the above officials.

To learn more about the Policy Board, go to the CAMPO Policy Board webpage.

Relationship with OCWCOG

CAMPO is a freestanding MPO, and the Policy Board has elected to contract with the OCWCOG for the administrative needs of the MPO. The administrative support by the OCWCOG includes personnel, bookkeeping and computer services.  

Relationship with Area Commission on Transportation (ACT)

The ACTs are advisory bodies to the Oregon Transportation Commission (OTC). Initially, ACTs were created to advise OTC on funding priority of transportation Modernization projects. Over the time, their consultative role has been expanded to other transportation issues.

The Cascades West Area Commission on Transportation (CWACT) is one of the oldest and most active of such commissions in Oregon. CWACT is made up of representatives of the public and private entities in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties.

CAMPO and CWACT have signed a coordination/cooperation protocol that outlines procedures for synchronization of transportation priorities and decisions between the two entities. A copy of this agreement is attached as Appendix C.


Relationship with State and Local Government

Upon the formation of CAMPO, Intergovernmental Agreements (IGAs) have been signed between CAMPO and ODOT, and CAMPO and local governments. These IGAs call for cooperation among the signatories and the designation of a representative to the CAMPO Policy Board and CAMPO Technical Advisory Committee.

In 2008, per the requirements of the new Transportation ACT, an IGA was signed by ODOT, CAMPO and the Corvallis Transit System which requires consultation with other signatories of the IGA on transportation plans and projects.
